Local enterprise partnerships will be locally owned partnerships between local authorities and business to drive economic growth across an economic area. They will be a key vehicle in delivering Government objectives for economic growth, decentralisation and helping to rationalise the regional tier, whilst also providing a means for local authorities to work together with business in order to quicken the economic recovery.

It was announced in the Emergency Budget in June 2010 that the Government will publish a White Paper in the summer, which will set out the Government's economic development plans and more detail on the transition from RDAs to local enterprise partnerships.
